Chemo with bronchitis?

Well, it was bound to happen...

I get super sick every winter, no matter how hard I try not to. This year is no exception.

I started coming down with something Saturday, and by Monday was basically bedridden. This morning my GP said it's acute bronchitis, borderline walking pneumonia. I'm waiting for my oncologist to call.

My GP said I'll probably still be able to have chemo, but it's up to my oncologist. Infact, my GP even said the chemo may help with the bronchitis.

Has anyone continued their treatments while sick?

Hi Joy,
You poor thing, I hope you feel better soon. I've been very lucky (touch wood) and haven't had any colds etc since beginning treatment so I can't offer any advice but just wanted to give you a Chemo's bad enough without acute bronchitis! Take care x

Definitely talk with your chemo doctor. He will determine whether you should take your next treatment on schedule or not. I had a bad cold before beginning my treatments and since I had had it for a week or so, they went ahead and began treatment. As far as my chronic sinus problems, I never felt better than when in treatment. I am sure it was all the steroids I was given to prevent an allergic reaction to the taxol.

Chemo with bronchitis?

I had a horrible, barking cough that produced a lot of mucus for over a month. I went to my GP and he gave me a Z-pack as well as a cough medication with codeine in it just to make sure I would still be able to do my chemo. He said my lungs were clear, and the chemo dr. agreed so they went ahead and did my first chemo on Dec 12. The cough was still there, and still just as bad, and finally went away just a few days ago. I think as long as your blood count is OK they would not have a problem with the chemo.
